Someone finally stitched together still photos from the Cassini explorer into a great fly-by of Saturn. Cool stuff.

  1. Ultra cool and “natural light and color” is unusual for these type of things. What music was that? I hear it a lot in soundtracks… or was that just the sound the Cassini recorded as it flew by?

    Cool film!

    Puts a cosmic spin on our national tragic theme song, Samuel Barber’s “Adagio”.

  3. Yeah. Thanks. I knew you’d know.

    Played on radio behind announcement of Roosevelt’s death. Played at funerals of Kennedy and Einstein.

    From Wiki on Kennedy assassination:
    “After the announcement, CBS Radio, apparently trying to play The Star Spangled Banner, inadvertently aired a brief excerpt of an LP Samuel Barber’s Adagio for Strings played at 78 rpm (at the wrong speed).”
